One thought on “MScanner: a classifier for retrieving Medline citations

  1. There have been patches of downtime for assorted reasons (server room cooling, and accidental deletion of the database at one point), but the MScanner service is running smoothly now.

    I also added the “future work” feature for training the classifier on words from the title/abstract in addition to the Medical Subject Headings.

    Above all I want my research to be useful to others, so feel free to contact me with problems or requests.
